Priya will talk you through each dish but here is a brief description to whet your appetite:
Pav Bhaji – legend has it that Pav Bhaji, which literally translates to bread and vegetables, was created by a street vendor in Mumbai to cater to mill workers looking for a tasty lunch. It is a dish like no other with its varied mix of vegetables cooked with spices and served with toasted pav buns.
Paneer Tikka – Marinated pieces of Indian cheese, served with a mint and coriander chutney. Very popular in Delhi where its often eaten standing up, at markets and roadside dhabas.
Sabudana Vada – Deep fried Tapioca and Peanut cakes are a popular road-side snack in western India often eaten in the morning or at tea time.
Pohe – Pounded rice cooked with cumin, mustard, green chilli, coriander and tomato is a lightly spiced streetfood popular across India with variations. We will have the version cooked with green peas on the day.
Vangyache Kaap – Marinated slices of aubergine dredged in rice flour and pan friend. Completely moreish if you like aubergines.
Ragda Pattice – Potato patties served with a dried pea curry and tamarind sauce. Another Mumbai classic.
